2014 Rock and Snow “Bridge 2 Bridge” 5 Mile Run Results

I’m not sure we could have had a better early August morning for the 2014 Rock and Snow “Bridge 2 Bridge” 5 Mile Run benefiting the Mohonk Preserve. There was a lot of good and positive energy at the Spring Farm Pavilion and lots of smiles. Everyone I talked to loved the course and, of course, the beauty they were running in. I personally could have done without the hill at mile 2 though. 🙂

As always, a race would be nothing without the tremendous effort of the volunteers. I’d like to personally thank all those out on the course making sure people went the right way, the people at the water stop, the finish line crew and all those others who helped before, during, and after the race.

There was also plenty of food to fuel the runners and I’d like to thank Yvonne for making the Veggie Salad. I may have eaten a few more cookies than I should have…oh well.

Here are the results from this morning – Results

Thanks again to all the runners and the volunteers!

2014 New Paltz Summer XC Series Finale

MugsLast night saw the conclusion of the 2014 Summer Cross Country Series. Another wonderful night for everyone to go out and run the distance of their choice without that pesky clock or others to race against. Even I, the timer, got to leave the computer in the car and go for a nice 8 mile run. We had beautiful mugs for awards this year designed and hand crafted by Solveig Comer of Most Precious Pottery.

I’d like to thank all the amazing volunteers, without them we wouldn’t be able to attend to all you racers. A special thanks goes out to Beth Glace, Steve Schallenkamp, Christine Kelton & Mendy Taylor who were the race directors for the 4 races. It takes a lot of time and effort to put those races on and I’m thankful we have such a wonderful group of leaders.

I’d also like to thank Charlotte Kopp for taking pictures at the races. She recently posted up her pictures from last weeks Blueberry Run – Photos

Finally I’d like to put a plug in for the Rock and Snow “Bridge 2 Bridge” Run that is coming up on Saturday August 9th, 2014.  It’s a benefit run for the Mohonk Preserve. There is no day of registration so make sure you sign up early.

After The Leaves will be coming up in November and is the last of the Shawangunk Runners races for the year. Keep an eye out for a post on that.

Thanks again!
